Ise Jingu consists of two main shrines, the Inner Shrine (Koutai Jingu) and the Outer Shrine (Toyouke Jingu). Toyouke-no-Omikami is enshrined at the Outer Shrine and Amaterasu-Omikami at the Inner Shrine. It is also famous for the Shikinen Sengu (ceremonial relocation of the shrine), which takes place every 20 years to rebuild the shrine buildings anew.
Surrounded by nature, the Ise Jingu Shrine is said to give worshippers a refreshing feeling. It is a place where Japanese traditions and culture are alive and well, and is visited by many worshippers from Japan and abroad.
